On Wednesday, 4th September, the Central Scotland Lunch took place at the Star and Garter in Linlithgow, organised by Sandy Park (Ki 1965-1970).
The lunch provided a great occasion for Old Fettesians of different years to get together in a relaxed environment and share everything, from looking back on school memories to looking forward to the 150th Celebrations. Absent friends were remembered, with Gordon Jarvie (Ca 1955-1959) reading a poem he had written in memory of OF and regular Central Scotland Lunch attendee, Tom Lloyd Evans (Ki 1954-1959). A very touching moment for those in attendance.
The Central Scotland Lunches are what Sandy calls “a club that is not a club” as they are so welcoming and open. Whether you live in the area or are just visiting, these lunches are open to all OFs of any age and we can assure you that you will be warmly welcomed!
The dates for the next lunch are 16th October and 23rd November 2019 at the Star & Garter Hotel, Linlithgow. The ticket price is £30 pp and £25 for OFs under 25. If you are interested in attending please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
